Janelle Monae's The Archandroid Makes Another Top 10 List
From the Music Room's "Top 10 Albums of the Year":
#5 The Archandroid: Janelle Monae
Janelle Monae’s ambitious debut album The Archandroid is a thing of true beauty, part rap, part folk, part rock, part disco, an epic record full of ambition and with 18 tracks and at 70 minutes long, it’s nothing short of a journey. Like all great concept albums The Archandroid follows a series of ideas, in this case Monae explores elements of science fiction and Afrofuturism. Doubtless to listening to any song as a standalone track is almost criminal, this is an album to be experienced in one sitting.
